All's well that ends well (a canvas)/ Sve je dobro što se dobro svrši (jedno platno)




uljane boje /  oil paints












finished/ dovršeno


This canvas took me about two months to finish and to be quite honest I was starting to wonder if I'll ever get there. I did finish it sometime last summer and maybe I shown you a photograph of it back than. Nevertheless, I  decided to post these photographs to show all the different stages it went trough. As you can see, I made a lot of corrections in the process. The church portrayed is that of Saint Stephanus located in one of my favourite cities in Croatia, Stari Grad on the island Hvar. There is a very funny episode of Malo Misto that takes place in front of this church and I must had watched it a hundred times.

Bilo mi je potrebno oko dva mjeseca da završim ovo ulje na platnu i iskreno počela sam se već bila pitati hoću li ga ikada dovršiti. No, jesam tamo nekad prošlog ljeta, a možda sam vam ga već i pokazala tada. Odlučila sam objaviti ove fotografije da vidite različite faze kroz koje je prošlo. Kao što možete vidjeti, bilo je dosta ispravaka. Crkva koja je naslikana je crkva Sv. Stjepana u Starom Gradu na otoku Hvaru, poznatu  svim ljubiteljima Malog Mista kao crkva ispred koje se događa "borba" u epizodi Borbene Ponoćke (mislim da sam je pogledala sto puta).

outfit post/ odjevna objava





















'Yes, alone we are, deeply alone, and always in store for us, a layer of loneliness even deeper. There is nothing we can do to dispose of that. No, loneliness shouldn't surprise us, as astonishing to experience as it may be. You can try turning yourself inside out, but all you are then is inside out and lonely instead of inside in and lonely.' Philip Roth, American Pastoral

" Da, mi smo sami, istinski sami i uvijek je ono što nas čeka  sloj usamljenosti još dublji. Ništa ne možemo učiniti da bi se toga riješili. Ne, usamljenost nas ne bih trebala čuditi koliko god zapanjujuće to iskustvo može biti. Možeš se pokušati preokrenuti iznutra vani, ali onda je sve si preokrenut iznutra vani i usamljen umjesto okrenut unutra i usamljen. Philip Roth, Američka Pastorala

I didn't expect a novel by Philip Roth to be so hearth-breaking. There is something more to this novel that just his ferocious drive to get at the bottom of things and his evident talent as a novelist, something I cannot quite put my finger on...something quite vulnerable in the way it is written. I have yet to finish it, but I'm somewhat surprised by how sad it has made me feel. Exactly why, I cannot say...or perhaps I can but I don't care to. At any rate, I won't go into it any further. The photographs were taken last Saturday. As you can see I was distracted by two adorable puppies which resulted in less time dedicated to  photography, but undoubtedly it was a fun distraction. I believe that animals know an animal lover when they see one. It is not a rare occurrence that their instincts are superior to our own.

Nisam očekivala da bi roman Philipa Rotha mogao biti tako srceparajući. Ima nešto više u ovom romanu osim njegovog snažne potrebe da uđe u srž stvari i očitog spisateljskog talenta, nešto što sasvim ne mogu odrediti...nešto jako ranjivo u načinu na koji je napisan. Još ga moram dovršiti, ali sam pomalo iznenađena koliko me rastužio. Točno zašto, ne mogu reći ili možda čak i mogu, ali ne želim. Kakogod, neću dalje zalaziti u to. Fotografije su uslikane prošle subote i kao što možete vidjeti pažnju su mi odvukla dva preslatka psića, što je rezultiralo s manje vremena posvećenog fotografiji, ali bez sumnje bilo je to zabavno ometanje. Mislim da životinje mogu osjetiti tko ih voli, a ponekad su njihovi su instikti bolji od naših.

Red vintage dress (outfit post) / Crvena vintage haljina (odjevna objava)

I don't think there is any doubt as to the star of the outfit presented today. It is this vintage red dress that used to be belong to my aunt. Any clothing item that makes you want to twirl is a good one in my book. When I wore it (last weekend), the weather was quite dreadful...very cold, foggy and rainy, but this dress made me forget about all that. I had to wear a jacket over it because it was so cold but I think it looks alright worn this way...What do you think? Do you wear vintage clothes?

Mislim da nema sumnje oko zvijezde današnjeg posta. To je ova crvena vintage haljina koja je nekad pripala mojoj teti. Bilo koji odjevni predmet koji vas navodi da se vrtite  je dobar, barem što se mene tiče. Kada sam je ja nosila (prošlog vikenda), vrijeme je bilo jako loše...vrlo hladno, maglovito i kišovito, ali ova haljina me navela da zaboravim na sve to. Morala sam obući i jaknu preko haljine  jer je bilo toliko hladno, ali mislim da i ovako dobro izgleda. Što vi mislite? Nosite li vintage odjeću?
